Fort Hood Report to Be Released Tomorrow

The Pentagon inquiry into the Fort Hood shooting will be released tomorrow according to the Washington Post. An interesting observation from the report is that officer performance evaluations need to be more forthright and honest in order to identify those who may pose a risk to others. The report was critical of the fact that MAJ Nidal M. Hasan continued to advance in the army despite poor performance and erratic behavior due to inflated formal evaluations that suggested he was a capable and competent officer.
